Services - Gang and Drug Task Force

Drugs and money seized in a drug investigation.

The Sherburne County Sheriff's Office formed its Drug Task Force in 2005. Up to that point, the county was a member of the Central Minnesota Drug Task Force. Where that group combined efforts to battle drug related crimes over a wide geographic area, the Sherburne County Drug Task Force now directs its efforts on drug-related issues in a more focused manner. The task force consists of five full-time staff members.

The main issue facing the county's drug task force is rampant use of methamphetamine and marijuana. The abuse and unlawful sale of pharmaceuticals is also on the rise. In 2008, the unit opened 182 cases and arrested 139 suspects. In 2009, 201 cases were opened and 169 suspects were arrested.
